Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: Sep 12, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: If colors got any better than this, I'd start wondering if someone had slipped something into my drink here.....
Cons:
The focus ring.....it took a while to get over the "cheesey" feel of the focus by wire.....but Canon is forgiven after viewing the pictures from this beauty.

For my portrait lenses, I had the 85/1.8 and the 135L which served me well in the past, but finally succumbed to the mystique of this hunk of love....and am simply blown away how good it can get. In the past, I have spent hours in CS2 to get shots from the 85/1.8 to look anywhere near what these pictures look like.

 
Canon EOS 5D

Review Date: Oct 11, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Handling, Viewfinder, LCD, Full Frame, Nice Grip, Shutter Sound
Cons:
are there any?

We've all heard the usual accolades, so all I will to rave about
is the dynamic range of this camera. Coming from the 20D, this
camera astounds me with it's ability to capture so much more detail in both highlights and shadows at once. The vast improvement of detail in my prints, even at 4x6, is exhilarating. It feels good to feel this good about photography again!
